Message from the Chief

On behalf of the Caddo Mills Police Department we would like to welcome you to our great community. What makes Caddo Mills a special place is the people. Below is a little bit of history on Caddo Mills.

Caddo Indians were early inhabitants and camped in the area near the banks of Caddo Creek. They first arrived in the late 1850s. On June 16, 1879, a post office opened. By the early 1880s the settlement had 100 residents, three churches, a school, and at least a dozen businesses. In 1886 the tracks of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad reached the area. By 1892 the number of businesses doubled and the population increased to 500. The town’s population reached 700 on the eve of World War I, then fell to 600 in the 1920s. By the early 1940s Caddo Mills had incorporated; the population was reported as 390 and the number of businesses as twenty. The census in 2010 shows the population as 1338. Today our population is approximately 1800 and steadily increasing.

The city currently has three reputable home builders developing neighborhoods at this time. A new Caddo Mills High School is in development and will have students starting August of 2022.

Again, our community is very excited you are here, if there is anything we can do for you please do not hesitate to call The Caddo Mills Police Department at 903-527-3116. Contact the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office at 903-453-6838 for after-hours and weekend police assistance.
